sippy cup advice please.

Hi ladies!

DD stopped drinking from a bottle at 12 months, I transitioned her to a Nuby sippy cup with the softer nipple. Last night I tried to give her a sippy cup with the hard nipple but she will not suck the hard nipple so that the milk could come out. She then cries for her other cup. I know it probably will take time, but I just am not sure how to go about it.

Should I rotate cups?

Wait it out?

Any suggestions are appreciated. TIA!

Re: sippy cup advice please.

  • I know I won't be of help, DS still only drinks his milk from a bottle. He won't drink it out of a sippy cup. The doctor said it was ok and for me to keep trying during the day with a specific sippy cup that is only for milk and then certain ones only be

  • Maybe she'd do better with a straw cup? That's the only kind my son has ever taken!

  • I wouldn't worry about it and just use the Nuby. DS won't do really hard sippy cups either except the Take N Toss ones, so he usually uses those at daycare and then mostly uses Nuk soft nipple ones at home. We've started doing an open cup too so I guess I

  • She will not drink from a straw yet. I'll try the straw sippy cup and see how it goes. She drinks from an open cup fine so I guess the hard sippy cup is no big deal. The nuby soft nipple just seems like a bottle to me.

  • Until DD was far older, she would have nothing to do with the hard sippy cups... It is what it is. IMO, not something I'd battle over, just use more of the soft ones until she's got such a strong suck that it busts the openings...
